Tucana is a constellation of stars in the southern sky, named after the toucan, a South American bird. It is one of twelve constellations conceived in the late sixteenth century by Petrus Plancius from the observations of Pieter Dirkszoon Keyser and Frederick de Houtman. This colourful bird is also a common one, well respected in various cultures as it is believed to be sent to them from the Gods.
All eight Houses at Tollbar Academy have the same structure and are governed by the same set of rules that apply to all Tollbar Academy students. Regardless of this, each house has its own identity and Tucana is certainly no exception.
Although there is no mythology tied to the inception of the Tucana constellation, Tucana House upholds important values and morals. Tucana House's pupils will uphold the proper values and morals that is expected of all students at Tollbar Academy. This new house will continue to inspire hard-work, determination, participation and most of all, teamwork. Pupils will be inspired to collaborate in order to succeed physically, mentally and academically. Just as toucans are colourful, bright and intelligent, pupils in Tucana House will be inspired to rise to that same standard.
